Overview


The art and craft of knitting has become popular once again, and this beautifully illustrated book for knitting enthusiasts presents more than 30 retro-inspired knitting patterns that fit today's fashion trends. Patterns range from a 1920s-style cloche hat revamped for the twenty-first century to a 1970s-style poncho-style wrap, updated for today with a tweed-style stitch. Unlike knitting books that simply copy vintage patterns, Vintage Knitting aims to reinvent retro patterns by adding details that reflect today's tastes and developments in fashion. Each project uses modern yarns, but encourages knitters to seek out vintage accessories if they can find them, and suggests sources where such items can be obtained. Most of this book's patterns are for more experienced knitters, but several are easy enough for newcomers to master before they go on to more challenging projects. The book is divided into separate chapters, with each chapter focusing on a different decade from the past century and presenting knitting patterns for garments of that era. More than 250 illustrations in color and black and white enhance this handsome and practical volume.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Textile designer Montgomerie (Easy Baby Knits) explores vintage fashion from the 1920s through the 1980s in this collection of knitted garments and accessories. Each chapter focuses on a particular decade and begins with a textual and visual overview of the major trends in terms of style, color, and popular culture. As with most vintage collections, some designs are more wearable than others; here, the accessories are easily the most appealing to everyday knitters. Courtney Kelley and Kate Gagnon Osborn's recent Vintage Modern Knits is more versatile, but knitters interested in true vintage garments (rather than vintage-inspired knits) will appreciate Knitting Vintage.
